The Pinkwell WHY for PSHCE (The Intent - Vision)
To deliver a PSHCE curriculum that is accessible to all and will maximise the outcomes for every child enabling them to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. We embed PSHCE into all of our lessons, encouraging our children to ask questions, take responsibility and develop self confidence and resilience. We help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about their rights and responsibilities and give them opportunities to make a positive impact on our diverse community.

The Pinkwell HOW for PSHCE (The Implementation)
Throughout project based learning (PBL) teachers skillfully interweave keys PHSCE opportunities. The school values of being an inclusive school with an ethos of acceptance, tolerance and celebration of identity, active engagement and the centrality of pupil voice, also reflects our learning within PHSCE. In addition to this, the teachers always establish a safe and comfortable classroom environment where the children can share their own experiences.
The Pinkwell SO WHAT for PSHCE (The Impact)
The school praises and rewards children on personal growth based on the Habits of the Mind. This grows and fosters a positive school environment where our children are resilient. In addition to this the children have been learning in their classes how to stay healthy and have a positive impact on society. This has been reflected in their outer school trips and their interactions with the public as well as their attitudes to learning and interactions with each other.
